For the A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of antagonists.
On my normal blogging days, Monday – parenting and Thursday – writing/publishing, I will tie that day’s topic to antagonists but on the other days (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), I will write about antagonists from movies, TVs or books. On Wednesdays, my Quote of the Week will be from an antagonist that matches the letter of the day. Enjoy.
Z is for Zoom, the super villain and archenemy of Barry Allen (aka The Flash). In the DC comic world there are two characters that are known as Zoom. They are also known as the Reverse-Flash. (There are three additional characters in addition to the ones listed here as Zoom that were called the Reverse-Flash.)
The first is Professor Eobard “Zoom” Thawne. He debuted as the Reverse-Flash in 1963. His costume is the reverse of The Flash, yellow with highlights of red.
The other character is Hunter Zolomon. He is the archenemy of Wally West (aka Kid Flash). He first appeared in 2002. In the beginning, he was actually friends with Wally, and he decided to make Wally a better hero by causing him to suffer a great personal tragedy or loss like the previous Flashes.
Both Zoom characters can travel at super-human speeds and as with most villains, they have a twisted sense that what they are doing is “right.” And as with many comic book characters, there are many storylines pitting these super villains against The Flash in his many incarnations.
